laundry services in Thailand and Vietnam for special clothes

Jump to last reply

Question about having laundry done in Thailand and Vietnam:

We will have several pieces of wicking/coated clothing that *must* be hung to dry and not put in a dryer. Also, no fabric softener in the washer or dryer.

How can I say this in Thai and/or Vietnamese in a few words? Will they do this for us (wash without fabric softener, then hang to dry?

I don't want to assume anything, so please, no comments are dumb :) I've lived abroad and know that washing clothes and other simple tasks are performed much differently.

If you can translate a few words for me to be able to explain this, that would be great too because I want to try to speak a few words. Maybe: "please no fabric softener in washer" "hang to dry, no dryer" Would something like that be understood and clear?

thanks so much! any and all feedback is welcomed and appreciated.

Stephanie
ps. yes, we'll also be washing by hand as needed, but want to have a load done once/twice during the trip.
